This online class is perfect for anyone who wants to be better informed about aquatic invasive species (AIS) management strategies. If you would like to be a more informed consumer about what’s happening on your nearby lake, have a better understanding of what lake management professionals are doing, or are considering new AIS control efforts, this class is for you! You will gain:

  • An introduction to AIS control and aquatic plant management
  • A better understanding of pesticides, how they work, and the regulations around their use
  • Insight on non-chemical treatment options
  • A better ability to evaluate and understand management effectiveness and take a longer-term view of management.

This course is offered by the AIS Detectors program at the University of Minnesota, which is jointly supported by the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center and University of Minnesota Extension. It is open to anyone, including residents of other states, though certain portions of the course, such as permitting
regulations, will include information specific to Minnesota.
